The focus this offseason for the New York Jets is on second-year quarterback Zach Wilson. The progress of his on-field skills is key of course. But his physical appearance is already the talk around the facility. Coach Robert Saleh said Wilson is thick. Wilson has bulked up a bit this offseason by adding more muscle and strength while also sticking to a new diet plan. Wilson says he finished his rookie season at 208 pounds but is currently at 221. He plans to play at 218 and thinks he performs better while carrying a little more weight on his 6-foot-2 frame.

Ryan Tannehill’s favorite receiver since becoming the Tennessee Titans’ starting quarterback now plays in Philadelphia. Luckily, the Titans got Tannehill a lot of new teammates to work with. The Titans quarterback is busy working to create chemistry and timing with all those new teammates. Tannehill said Tuesday it's been fun working with the new Titans. A.J. Brown was traded on the first night of the NFL draft to Philadelphia. They signed two-time Pro Bowl tight end Austin Hooper and traded for Robert Woods. They netted receiver Treylon Burks from the Brown trade. One person Tannehill enjoys throwing to already is Woods. The veteran has been on the field despite tearing his left ACL last November.

Reigning MVP Aaron Rodgers was one of several notable veterans missing as the Green Bay Packers began voluntary organized team activities this week. Packers coach Matt LaFleur confirmed Tuesday that Rodgers isn’t expected at all this week. Rodgers indicated last month he plans to join the Packers for their mandatory minicamp in June. Rodgers skipped all the OTAs as well as the minicamp last year during a standoff with team management. He has said on multiple occasions that his relationship with team officials has improved over the last year.

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Travis Etienne is back to full speed and cleared to do anything and everything after a foot injury ended his rookie season before it even began. The 25th overall pick in the 2021 draft could be a huge addition to an offense that needs more playmakers. The Jags committed $105 million in free agency to add pass catchers Christian Kirk, Zay Jones and Evan Engram. Etienne is a somewhat forgotten piece, another option for his former college teammate, quarterback Trevor Lawrence. Lawrence says "everybody's been anxious for him to get back, including myself. He adds a lot of versatility for us, really explosive. We’re all pumped to have him back.”
